Lisa and Everybody else-look at all the pictures, aren't you proud of me?
This blog thing is a great way to communicate but the funny thing is you really have no idea just who reading it. I know when we were waiting I read every blog I can get my hands on just to share their story while waiting for ours to come about. So yesterday while we were waiting and we were in the final stretch to meet Cali, I thought I would hear some heavenly music or the theme from Rocky beginning to play. Well instead the stress level got a bit higher then I would have imagined. The kids energy level had them bouncing off the walls-literally. And I know my patience was running on low with Greg and the kids. So I made everyone lay on their beds at 3:15 and we waited for the phone to ring announcing Cali's arrival into the building. I tried praying and since Lily is three and my mind was spinning I could only sing (in my head) the songs from Boz. Not the music I had envisioned but we all know that God does have a sense of humor.
But I have got to say that the moment I saw her it really was magical. It was love at first sight, again. I just was so relieved to hold her. I prayed for so long that this was the right thing for Cali and for all of us. It is easy to say that God knows all and is He is perfect but for me meeting Cali was like having God walking right next to me holding my hand and bringing me to her.
